Intrepid Travel introduces new 2022 ‘Impact Initiatives’.
The new experiences span16 countries and include activities such as meals at local establishments supporting marginalised groups, to immersive tours preserving Indigenous and ethnic minority legacies.
Intrepid Travel, the B Corp certified tour operator with a mission to create positive change through the joy of travel, has announced it is adding 22 new ‘impact initiatives’ to its itineraries in 2022 – which the company defines as activities that directly support environmental or wildlife conservation, preserve Indigenous culture or support marginalised social groups – adding to an already robust portfolio of sustainable and ethical experiences around the globe.
The majority of Intrepid Travel’s top trips already contain ‘impact initiatives’, with dozens having been added to the tour operator’s portfolio in the last year alone. The addition of 22 more in 2022 is proof of the company’s ongoing commitment to operate trips that give back to both people and the planet.
“The tourism industry is it at a pivotal moment with the gradual resumption of travel. Businesses such as ours have an exciting opportunity, not to mention a responsibility, to find more ways to contribute in a positive way to the places and people we visit”, said Erica Kritikides (Senior Product Manager Intrepid Travel).
“Intrepid’s sustainable, experience-rich style of travel allows people of all nationalities and backgrounds to connect through immersive, hands-on experiences. Being more intentional with the experiences we offer our travellers allows us to collectively make a greater positive impact in our shared world”.
